All levels are welcome and no experience is necessary.
Step into the innocence of heart–directed living with Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga and the art of Zen meditation.
Integrate the vibrancy of vinyasa yoga, upliftment of kundalini yoga and presence of Zen into your life. These practices each lead to deep calm and quiet in your mind and body, allowing your heart to blossom. Formulated to bring you to your edge, Ann’s vinyasa flow classes touch long-held tension and insecurities, melting them in the gentle fire of your own alchemical process. Susan will invite you into the steadiness of daily Zen meditation encouraging awareness of breath and the return to your still point. Denise’s classes inspire radical change and honesty through Kundalini yoga, one of the most transformative paths available today. Retreat fee:
